Ramsay: Youth Cup win would be "perfect" end to the season
17th May 2016
Under-19s coach Eric Ramsay says an seventh successive Welsh Cup title would be a "perfect" end to the season.
The young Swans go in search of silverware once more when they face Gap Connah's Quay in the FAW Youth Cup final on Wednesday (May 18) at Newtown's Latham Park (7.30pm)
Swansea have scored 27 goals en route to this year's final, beating Llanidloes Town, Cardiff City, Llandudno and Newport County.
Victory would see the Under-19s lift the trophy for a seventh successive year and for a tenth time in the club's history.
"We are incredibly excited - everyone knows what the competition means to this club," said Ramsay.
"We want to continue our winning run to lift the title for a seventh successive season. All the players are well aware of that history and it is a tradition everyone wants to maintain.
"This competition has given us something to play for right up until the end of the season. Training has been competitive, everyone is playing for their place and everyone wants to be a part of this game.
"We are under no illusions that this will be a huge test and a challenge for our young players, and we will treat Connah's Quay with the respect they deserve.
"They have one of the strongest academy set-ups in the Welsh Premier League and have a history of producing players who go on to play at senior level, so that cannot be underestimated.
"We achieved our objective to win our merit group in April, so to win the Youth Cup would be a perfect way to end the season."
